Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.
— Mark Twain

One of our main goals at a.k.a. HOPE is to find a way for as many people as possible to get involved, whether you’re rich, poor, young, old, a traveler or a recluse. If you want to impact this world for the better we have a solution for you.

For those of you who can’t afford to give the sizable donation you would like to give and would love to do more, this option is for you. What we would ask of you is to give your creativity. Match your passion with a worthwhile cause and raise money or collect supplies to make your mark.

Are you a runner? Organize a community wide 5k and raise money for every kilometer the runners complete. Are you a photographer or painter? Set up a gallery and have a silent auction to sell your favorite pieces. Are you a reader? Construct a bin to gather tablets (nooks, kindles, iPads, etc.) at your local library. Are you a teacher? Talk to your local administrators and organize a drive to gather all the school supplies you can think of!

As you can see, there is an endless possibility of ideas that you can make a reality. Find your passion, get creative, and include your closest friends to really make a huge difference, not only on our community here in Uganda but also in your own community wherever you may be. We’ve found that when you incorporate what you love to do with a cause that makes you give outside of your own means, the effects can be immeasurable. It ignores discrimination, disability, disrespect, disfunction, and distance to find those who need HOPE most.

Contact us and share your idea with us to see how we can best partner together. Because together we can make the world a better place.
